      In Cultural Heritage projects, it is very important to identify and track weathering effects on monuments in order to design and test conservation strategies. Currently, this mapping is manual work performed by experts ...
    • OpenREC: A Framework for 3D Reconstruction of Models from Photographs 

      Arroyo, Germán; Martín, Domingo (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      In this paper we introduce openREC to the scientific community, an extendable framework for reconstruction of 3D models from photographs. This system provides a framework designed for archaeologist, art restorers, architects, ...
    • From Paper to Web: Automatic Generation of a Web-Accessible 3D Repository of Pottery Types 

      Dellepiane, Matteo; Callieri, Marco; Banterle, Francesco; Arenga, Domenico; Zallocco, Massimo; Scopigno, Roberto (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      3D web repositories are a hot topic for the research community in general. In the Cultural Heritage (CH) context, 3D repositories pose a difficult challenge due to the complexity and variability of models and to the need ...
    • Visualization of ERT Data for Archaeological Purposes 

      Bernardes, Paulo; Alves, Mafalda; Pereira, Bruno; Madeira, Joaquim; Martins, Manuela; Fontes, Luis (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      This work presents a visualization methodology for the correct comprehension and interpretation of ERT data by archaeologists. The authors developed a methodology based not only in colour mapping and slicing techniques but ...
    • 3D Annotation Transfer 

      Scalas, Andreas; Mortara, Michela; Spagnuolo, Michela (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      In the last few years, there has been an increase in digitalization efforts within the Cultural Heritage field, which boosted the interest for new strategies to improve documentation standards. While these concepts have ...
